    Well, as a new plane owner, I had to research tie down fees at local airports in my community.

    I found that both Plymouth, MA (KPYM) and Hyannis, MA (KHYA) were the cheapest, with town own tie downs costing a wopping $37.50 / month (Grass in plymouth, and paved in hyannis).
    But the average was anywhere from 60.00 - 70.00 / month.

    Is that close to what you all are paying?

    $180 a month divided by two. That covers the hangar rent and also membership to Boone Airport Inc. which pays the lease on the land. Not a bad deal considering the mini warehouse storage facility next to the airport charges $200 a month for an 8x10.

    Mine went up from $275 to $350 a couple of months ago. I think my expression was like the acronym that Ed posted for engine failure on a multi.

    Wings field KLOM - Grass tiedown is $75.00 per month ( grass has three concrete pads to put wheels on) Tie down fee is waived if you agree to get all of your mx done at the FBO there. I thinik paved is $100 and hangar is $300 but can be bumped if you don't by a share which is several grand.

    I am glad I live in the midwest, most small town airports do not charge for outside tie downs. Hangers range from $60-$75 for shade hangers and $80- $175 for T-hangers with folding door. St. Louis and K.C areas are higher. We have several owners from the city that keep their planes here because they could save money. With the price of gas going up, it my cost them more now.

    We were getting a steal...

    $150/mo.

    For a hangar.

    For THREE planes.

    Well, it was too good I guess, they just jacked our rate up to $516/mo which is still quite reasonable for three airplanes at a class C. Good service there too. It just knocked a big chunk of out my new-plane budget, as that's $12/member/month. :mad:

    A LOT more.

    My field is $100 per month for hard surface tie down with electric for engine heaters.

    T hangars are $550 a month. But less than 3 years old, so excellent shape. Includes a fire extinguisher and electric. Concrete floor, bifold door.

    Home airport in the middle of nowhere in Canada, it's $100 per month for outside parking and $400 per month for shared hangar space. However, down here in Florida where I'm staying during the winter, it's $300 per month for outside parking and probably not within my budget for anything indoors.
